- Oh, please, mighty Debian, why do you want to remove kupfer (my most used and most useful high level app in my desktop) when I just want to do a routine dist-upgrade?
Seriously, when I don't understand the science behind it 100%, it becomes all magic to me and I might as well pray to the almighty Debian god. XD

Cryptocat Is Having A Fundraiser On Kickstarter!
- Yesterday I managed to successfully install and play OpenXcom. That brought back some memories! I felt like 15 years old again! :D Actually, I succeded in 2 things: it was easy as pie to run the original DOS game through DosBox on Linux. On the other hand, I couldn't install OpenXcom on Crunchbang Waldorf (based on Debian Wheezy) because of a missing dependency, so I had to try it on Win7. Which run flawlessly, patches and all. I lost track of time and went to bed at 4 am, after winning two battles and beginning research on plasma rifles. ;) Now, please, can someone package OpenXcom for Debian? :D That would be awesome!
- Today I wanted to try and convert some mp3 files into opus. I know it's a relatively new codec/format, but since libopus0 is in Debian since squeeze (backported) and opus-tools since wheezy, it was only a question whether gstreamer0.10 and the converting tools already supported it. (I'm running Crunchbang Waldorf which is based on wheezy.) Tried soundconverter and oggconvert with no such luck. Ended using soundconvert to batch-convert into oga with low quality. Gained ~60% of storage without noticeable sound difference. All in all, I call it a win. :) I would still like to try opus, though.
A mere 8 months after getting the W3C HTML Working Group to say that DRM was “in scope”, all major browser developers support it or are planning to. Big Media must be thinking “wow - that was easy.”
